It won't matter to Trump. He'll tell his lawyers to file an appeal. He thinks he's going to wear the committee down like he did subcontractors and other people, down to the point where they decided to settle. This is not an analogous situation.

Completely unqualified nominee for the Federal Reserve Stephen Moore is still whining. Boo, f***ing, hoo. He really is the perfect Republican. He doesn't know shit but speaks like he's an authority, stays on message no matter what reality shows, and never EVER takes responsibility for his own actions.

He is dumber than I thought. CNN paid him to mouth off, not to coodle and flatter him forever more.

Herman Wouk, age 103, author of The Caine Mutiny and many bestsellers that were turned into movies and tv miniseries... I spent a lot of hours reading his books. Unbeknownst to me at the time I read it, Marjorie Morningstar introduced me to the sort of New York Jewish life that I would later see first hand when I met and married.

Hm. What audience is he addressing? Presumably not the Congressional hearing.

He's up for re-election. Needs money from those rich pharmaceutical companies to support his campaign.

In Topic: Russia Investigations

Trump's trying to reinforce the "spying on his campaign" charge by wondering why no one informed him of any investigation of Flynn. But whoops there is this:

Quote

Former President Barack Obama urged Trump not to hire Flynn in a meeting two days after the election, claiming he was problematic and prone to crazy ideas, according to officials from both administrations. Sally Yates, Trump’s acting attorney general until he fired her days after taking office, testified to senators in 2017 that she warned the president Flynn could be “compromised” by his ties to the Russians


Maybe they didn't use the magic word "investigation" so Trump didn't need to pay any attention to the warnings.
